Project update. After receiving feedback we will be changing the name of the story. The word troll can be taken in a negative context. We don't want anyone taking this story literally. The symbolic nature of the story is our adopted pets bring us joy and help us forget our problems. In no way are we saying adopted people are trolls. We are trying to show that even if you have a child of your own, don't neglect the other blessings in your life.
WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!
We want to thank everyone who has pledged and supported this project! We are sooo happy, and excited about getting this book in your (or your children's hands)!! We know so many of you have shared it with your friends and family and we thank you for that!

BENCHMARK #1 $15,000- Will allow Jill Kirkham to sign books for the first time in her life at conventions in front of actual people!! (This one means allot to Jill). It will help us travel to and from conventions, like Comic con to meet fans, promote and sell the books. Also getting this book in front of potential publishers for it. It will help with booth space, banners, T Shirts, shipping of products, to and from conventions. It will also allow us to print the needed copies of the book to do so.

WRITTEN AND DRAWN BY HUSBAND AND WIFE TYLER & JILL KIRKHAM
First off thanks so much for checking out our KICKSTARTER page, we really appreciate it!! This story is very personal and near and dear to us! We thought there would be some people that could relate to our story so we want to share it!
We have been working on this story over the past year or so. This is Jill Kirkhams first major work! She wrote it (while in between working on my normal DC comics), I drew it! I have a lot of fun drawing this type of style! It lets me explore my urge to do something different! We both LOVE Fantasy stuff so naturally a fantasy based world was fitting! I am very proud and happy with what we have done together here!
Our real life story is what inspired us to do this story book. As we have been trying for years now to have a baby of our own, We find comfort in our adopted dogs! Nawrg represents this in the book. How comforting our dogs are to us when we get down and depressed after countless failed attempts at trying to have a baby. Its frustrating when something that is supposed to be natural just isn't happening. Its always great knowing we have our dogs here with us to give a good snuggle! Nawrg blesses a young couples lives, by helping them forget their worries and stress and just live happy with the blessings they already have!
We really need your help here on KICKSTARTER to get this book done, off the ground and in your hands!! There are still crucial things that need to be done to complete it. Like wrapping up the art, editing, design work, production, buying a bar code, and most important and expensive is printing and shipping the books. Not to mention taxes and the Amazon fees. The minimum goal we have put will just barely cover this stuff.
The Book is set to be a 26-30 page hardcover. We want the quality of the printing to be the absolute best it can be! With nice smooth paper so the art and colors jump off the page. Solid hard covers on every book so kids can beat the snot out of the book!!
BENCHMARK #1 $15,000- Will allow Jill and I travel to conventions to meet fans, promote and sell the books. It will help with booth space, banners, T Shirts, shipping of products, to and from conventions.
Thanks again for looking, we hope you all enjoy what we have done!!!!
Risks and challenges
The book is so close to completion I am 100% confident that if this funds you will get everything we claim you will!!! I have been drawing comics and doing art professorially for 10 years, and I am a guy that doesn't miss deadlines!
So rest assure If this project funds here on KICKSTARTER everything will be completed and books WILL be printed and shipped!
